Gilbert Hsiao: Shape/Anti-Shape
September 12 - October 31, 2009
2309 Caroline Street, Houston, TX 77004
"Shape/Anti-Shape showcases Hsiao‘s recent exploration of the use of irregularly shaped supports as a means of organizing pictorial space. The result is a continuously moving surface, which is reinforced through the shape of the painting. Metallic and fluorescent paint is applied with a vintage compressorless sprayer, creating a textured surface that makes these paintings an absorbing experience whether viewed close up or from a distance."
